The Joliet J-Hawks wrapped up their regular season with a statement win. They shut out Absarokee 48-0 on the Huskies’ home field. The J-Hawks will now be practicing in hopes to just play another football game this year. Joliet did all they could, finishing 4-4, but have played good football lately. 

Joliet will be rooting for Ennis this weekend as they take on Twin Bridges. The implications of this game are very simple. If Twin Bridges wins, they will move onto the 8-Man State playoffs as the third and final seed from the South division, ending Joliet’s season. If Ennis wins, then Joliet will remain the three seed going into the playoffs and Twin Bridges will fall short. 

There is a lot riding on this game, but it does not look good for Joliet. Ennis’ only win this season came all the way back on Sept. 27 against Absarokee. Comparing similar matchups, Twin Bridges beat Absarokee 54-20 on Sept. 13. Joliet will be hoping that Ennis saved it’s best football for the last game of the year.

Joliet put points on the board early and often in this game. In the first quarter, Wyatt Anderson scored an early 25-yard touchdown on the ground, followed by a 6-yard rushing score from Hayden Ward. Joliet converted one of two two-point conversions, which gave the J-Hawks 14 points. 

In the second quarter, Joliet had a lot of success on offense. They scored four touchdowns, including three touchdowns from Hayden Ward and one from Deon Bradley. Bailey threw for two touchdowns in the quarter, which included a 13-yard pass to Caleb Bailey for a score. Ward also ran in for a touchdown, along with a two-point conversion. Joliet scored another 28 points in this quarter and put the game well out of reach before it really even got started. Joliet went into the locker room with a whopping 42-0 lead.

Joliet’s offense and defense coasted in the second half as they held onto their six-possession lead. The J-Hawks scored just one touchdown in the second half on a four-yard rush in the third quarter. That was the seventh touchdown of the game for the J-Hawks.

Joliet ended up winning this game 48-0 with ease. Their quarterback Hayden Ward was responsible for four touchdowns in this game, and also two two-point conversions. Wyatt Anderson scored from 25-yards out in this game, as well.

 

Joliet now just has to wait and see if they will get to play another game this season. They did what they could this year, but the fate of their season now rests in the hands of the Ennis Mustangs. 

 

The Park City Panthers are officially in the playoffs as the #2 seed from the Southern division. They take on Absarokee this weekend, and will likely sit many of their starters as they try to stay healthy for the playoffs. The Panthers kick off their game against the Huskies on Friday, Oct. 25 at 7:00 p.m.
